Quite long time ago I started to gather experience in this area:
https://archive.litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=18437.msg156242#msg156242

And finally I have implemented real outdoor rig.
And one month of successfull testing now: rain, high humidity and temperature up to 30 Celsius degree.
It's the standalone solution - i.e. without any external roof. And it looks really stealthily.
(to keep it at night - I'm covering yet GPU's and mobo's LEDs with black adhesive tape)

It's 4x GPU rig (I'm using 4x GTX 1070). Configuration protects mobo and PSU against humidity.
Cost of material including cables, risers (excluding GPUs, mobo and PSU) - is ~35$
approx. dimensions: 45x57x57 [cm],

current example (rain, high humidity and 16 degree Celsius air):

Code:

In my head Smiley
I would have to take some photos during installation and prepare a step-by-step instruction.
(in fact, there is some opportunity - I plan to build my last rig tommorow...)

so, fourty raw photos made, just in case...
is there anybody interested enough, i.e. would like to pay a symbolic bounty for such manual? Smiley

no,
after one month of operation and after several storms - I may say that it's water proof
(at such a level, that I don't switch-off my rigs during a storm, it's just a waste of time Smiley )

It seems that the 1070 are very hot cards, because my R9 380 are colder with a reasonable fan speed and are in my not so cold basement. If I put my miners outside, they can get to 40°C or less easily I think.

 Doubt it - R9 380s tend to run in the 70C-80C range OR HIGHER when mining from everything I've seen.
 No bloody WAY they're running at 40c WHEN MINING.


 If you have software that's claiming they're running that cool, I'd BET it's either broken or it was older software for the HD 7xxx / R9 2xx series that wasn't updated correctly for the R9 3xx series.


I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Now, with MSI Afterburner, I can tell you that my cards are running between 52°C and 59°C with fans pushed at a bit more of half of their capacity.

because the way how air circulate under the table and some instalation gadgets

the best proof is that all of my PSU's still work fine,
after summer and winter true tests

Thanks, I have myself been toying with the idea but always ended up not trying because of moisture and dust from a road nearby, thats a bad combination Tongue
